So what exactly are terpenes, and what do they do?
Terpenes are organic compounds found in many plants, including cannabis. They are responsible for the plant's distinctive aroma and flavor profile, and they also play a vital role in the overall effect of cannabis consumption. Terpenes interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating various physiological and cognitive processes.
Different terpenes have different effects on the body and mind, and they work in synergy with other compounds in the cannabis plant, such as cannabinoids like THC and CBD. For example, myrcene has a sedative effect and may enhance the psychoactive effects of THC. Limonene, on the other hand, has a mood-lifting effect and may help relieve stress and anxiety.
In addition to their potential therapeutic benefits, terpenes also have practical uses in the cannabis industry. For example, they can be used to enhance the flavor and aroma of cannabis products, making them more appealing to consumers. Limonene is found in cannabis but also in many citrus fruits, and it's responsible for the tastes associated with citrus ranging from sweet to bitter. Adding this terpene to cannabis products produces a similar effect. Terpenes can also be used to create customized blends of cannabis strains, allowing for more precise control over the effects of a particular product.
